Tech Community meet and greet



  • At iTel offices on Mission Flats.

    Friday May 5 2017 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM PDT

    There will be free food. Alcohol costs money though. I think Red Beard is supplying it.

    @Torren you might want to show. Maybe some of the Scorpion people or Tusk Automation folks might be interested. Or anyone who is shopping around for nerd-jobs in town and wants to have their potential employer recognize them socially…

    I suspect @amanda and @Kimberely will be there… Maybe @lincolns too.

    Hi @pierre ,

    Is this a meet and greet or is there some sort of presentation or speakers as well?

    Thanks for posting this.



  • Hey everyone!

    To answer some questions, it’s a social for everyone and anyone. There will be a taco bar, beverages from Red Beard (cash & credit will be taken), live music, and more.

    There will be a short talk/presentation around 6pm with an update on the changes and developments on the North Shore and more initiatives to grow the tech sector.

    Other than that, come hang out! Free to attend, just rsvp here on this thread or on the picatic: https://www.picatic.com/cincodetecho

    Any questions just let us know :) Hope to see you all there.
